    Looks like Friday/Saturday could see fairly widespread wintery weather - mostly sleet - but some high places might see snow in some cases possibly quite a bit. Seems very fleeting though.

    A LOW RISK at the moment of snow this weekend, but if it doesn't happen some places look to be rather wet and VERY cold, in fact it will feel like 2C in some places with a biting northerly wind touching gale force https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/features/59388997

    Could be quite bad for certain localised parts. (And bitterly cooling for the body in the wind - some people might not appreciate the lengths they need to wrap up against it and get caught out).

    Constant upgrades on the snow front on the model runs tonight - though looks like only really applies to people on high ground, sleet or rain for everyone else.

    Here in Durham, the wind is absolutely wild, and it's 2 degrees and wet, awful day.

    XCW is giving us all kinds of snow amounts (8cm+) in the south west London area currently ... Highly expecting that to change / disappear!!

    Definitely a case of batten down the hatches for the north east!!

    Only 0.7cm for me in the SW (Somerset) but I doubt it will be more than sleet. The wind direction and gusts even down here will be nasty and quite likely to bring trees down - I might head off from work early as it looks particularly bad my normal time for coming home.

    Has the Daily Express imploded yet with the thought of the allegedly incoming snow?

    Local idiots on the radio saying we're going to get six inches of snow and 75mph winds.

    XC Weather suggests gusts up to 40mph (and it usually massively over estimates) and 0.8cm snow with rain either side.
